HARMONIC BALANCER BAD OR NOT?

Showing 5 out of 5 Posts
Question From hammerdog on HARMONIC BALANCER BAD OR NOT?

i have a 99 nissan frontier xe truck, 2 wheel dr. 4 cyl, I was told by a repair shop that i need a harmonic balancer. They lifted the truck, and showed me where the harmonic balancer was shaved a little bit and pushing up against the oil pump. Also they said i needed a front seal in the harmonic balancer, cuz it was leaking. . HOW can i know for sure if i need this part? This shop was owned by a scam artist arab...i know i need a front seal, but do i really need a harmonic balancer? And what would happen if i kept driving it like this? My truck has no symptoms also...

Response From Hammer Time

This shop was owned by a scam artist arab..

Then why would you go there? Nobody forces you to go to a shop that you don't trust.

Response From nickwarner Top Rated Answer

They took you into the bay while it was on the rack and showed you what was happening so you could see it with your own eyes. For being a "scam artist arab" he seems to be running a more legit shop than you let on. If you don't trust him go to a different shop. I guess you only like ones owned by a white protestant, huh? Seems like they showed you what was happening and I bet they are right. Drive with a bad balancer and the crank can break in two. You will lose oil from the seal and lock up the motor. After that I suppose you can burn a cross to protest the obvious affront to your white supremacy from the brown people. Or maybe you can get it fixed instead of accusing those who take the time to show you in person what is happening to your truck of being a con just because they are the wrong color.

Response From re-tired

I was going to do the right (WHITE) thing and bury my head in the sand , but damit RICK , your right.

Response From Discretesignals

Get a second opinion. If you continue driving it like that, eventually the balancer will either fall off or shave a hole through the timing cover.

Crankshaft pulley fell off.... what damage could it have caused?

Question From seanandshonz on Crankshaft pulley fell off.... what damage could it have caused?

Hi

I was driving home last night and there was a massive bang, I had to drive about 200yrds to the parking space and when I looked under the hood the crankshaft pulley had disapeared, I found it on the other side of the road. I was just wondering if this could have caused any more damage or will it be just replace the part, I have a new one ordered?

Thanks a lot in advance if anyone could give any advise, it would be gratefully appreciated.

Sean

P.S the car is a Nissan Almera Tino 1.8 (2003)

Response From Hammer Time

You need to look at it closer and find out if the entire pulley came off along with the center bolt or if it just separated the outer portion of the pulley and the center is still there. If the whole thing came off with the bolt, you can pretty much bet the crankshaft is wasted which means new engine but if the pulley itself came apart and the center portion is still there, you can just replace the pulley.

Yes, yes and yes. Unless someone has reinvented the wheel this is the Harmonic balancer for the engine as well as a pulley. Glad it only went 600 yards. Hope the bolt and hub of the thing are still there or would be a first to even hear of for me.

Just know the basic but important idea is for that to cancel vibrations that the engine does make when running. Chance that without that the engine could be hurt. Some risk here for real damage IMO.

If bolt is gone or really fell out perhaps try a new bolt alone and see if it will nicely thread in or if old one broke somehow it's trouble.

Good luck. Can't really think of why or how the entire unit fell off. Outer part with pulley for belt(s) I can understand just not the whole thing all at once as described,

Response From Hammer Time

If the hub got loose on the crankshaft for any reason, it would severely damage the crankshaft due to wobbling before coming off so you won't save it if that happened.

Ya - I smell trouble. A bit surprised there wasn't some wild behavior before this much happened?!

Hi thanks for the replies, not been online for a couple of days.

Yeah the whole thing came off, the crankshaft pulley, the key and the bolt, never found the key or the bolt. I havent managed to get a look at the car yet, got a lot of commitments hopefully will be sunday when i get to look at it.

Unfortunately it doesnt sound good, but thanks again for the replies.

No wild behaviour, was taking the good lady shopping when it happened so the car wasnt above 60mph.

Thanks again

Response From Hammer Time

I would bet you have some pretty serious damage to the crankshaft both at the keyway groove and the outside surface from that pulley working back and forth before coming off.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

This is a first for me for the whole thing to just fly off but it's more than just a pulley as said above. Again, I'd get just the proper bolt (quite likely a dealer bolt not just any) and make sure threads are good and part of original bolt isn't somehow broken off inside. If all looks good then I'd replace other items missing. If time see if it runs OK if belt(s) are there for a test. Look for damage to anything that sucker hit on its way out too!

What worries me is that bolt about surely had to be loose and slowly work its way out so if that's just what happened belt(s) were out of line for who knows how long and probably no good.

Go easy spending too much money as if crankshaft proves bad or other engine disasters were damaged by lack of balance you just might need a replacement engine as the best way out.

The concept of those things has been around forever in all sorts of engines and different makers,

Question From trentjwanta on help me out please

i have a 2004 nissan murano with a 3.5L cvt trans, it only has 86000 miles but has had a bogging problem upon acceleration from a stop. mil light came on about 3 months ago, took it to my mechanic and he said it was a cracked converter b1 sent pieces into the rear cat. converter clogging exhaust. while saving up the money it started to make a loud rattling and vibration sound upon accel. at low rpm's figured it was just the converter getting worse. so finally got the money and replaced it $2000 out of pocket. now my mil light is off but still have the bogging and rattling, my mechanic tells me the rattling is coming from a pulley thats where he could hear the sound the loudest but doesn't know about the bogging obviously a pulley isn't going to cause a shifting issue. Can anyone help? greatly appreciated.

trent; Have him recheck the backpressure. May be way off, here, but I've seen those chunks work their way all of the way back to the muffler. It could be plugged, too. I would think that you'd be getting a lean code if the fuel filter was plugged enough to cause this problem, but worth a check, also. As far as the pulley rattling, you could remove the serpentine belt and run the engine just long enough to see if the noise is still there. If it's not, then check all of the pulleys, including the harmonic balancer and water pump. If the noise is still there, you've just eliminated the belt driven parts.
